"Madrid feels like home" says Medvedev after clinching Davis Cup Finals semifinals

Daniil Medvedev is determined to end the year on a high note as he leads his nation to potential Davis Cup Finals glory.

Medvedev has never hidden his pride in playing for Russian and often times spoke about his desire to win for his country. He tried his best at the Olympics but failed to do so and redemption may be coming in the Davis Cup Finals. Russia is in the semifinals and they will play against Germany for the finals. In order to get there, they needed to win two matches in Madrid and Medvedev was happy they were able to do so.

He admitted that playing here feels like home:

"Madrid feels like home, we are winning a lot of matches, we beat Spain the other day. It was a great boost of confidence to beat the home favorites.”

The confidence was clearly evident in the match against a very tricky Swedish team that did not back down. Both Rublev and Medvedev faced stiff competition but both were able to overcome it to give Russian the 2-0 victory. The Russian played a very solid match against Ymer but found himself broken a couple of times which is uncharacteristic of him and he admitted as much.

Asked what he would like to have changed about the match he simply said:

“I should have served better but I am really happy to bring the point to the team."

As long as he keeps winning he will bring points to Russian and keep their hopes of winning the competition alive. The nation is going for a clean sweep in both team competitions as they won the Billie Jean King Cup Finals as well.
